yeah, I go with '74.

Would have to check them out for actual dates but there are 3-4 in the June/August/October runs that are literally stunning.

Didn't used to like the song, classed it as filler but, over the years, I've gotten to see it as not just a vehicle for Jerry's guitar virtuoso-ism (new word) but also one of Bob's better Bob songs ....... even if it is a Cash song.

Hard to beat this one, coming out of an equally hot 'Me & My Uncle", which itself is preceded by a goofy "Stayin' Alive" tease.

Jerry just rips it up here.

Honorable mention to 5/9/77, often overlooked b/c of the rest of the amazingly hot show.
